Physics proves longer snubbers are stronger and more comfortable to crew when the wind pipes up. However, there's a significant market for short snubbers. Our solution: allow folks to choose the length that's best for their boat and the conditions they typically encounter. We still offer snubbers in fixed lengths for those that need a quick turnaround on shipping.
The 48 North Marine Anchor snubber is hand-assembled and made of marine-grade, UV stabilized 3-strand white high-quality nylon rope with a stainless steel thimble spliced into the eye. The snubber ships with a 3/8" stainless steel shackle, anti-chafing and hand-whipped end. The product is available in a dozen different lengths and 3 trim colors. A 12" soft eye spliced into boat end is available with or without chafing. You can optionally select a hook or buy it without one.
Note: This product is made-to-order
and, depending on the season, can take 2-3 days to make and ship. If
you need a quick turnaround, have a look at our pre-made snubbers. On
trim colors, choosing black results in a better product as we use
Chafe-Master that's made specifically as an anti-chafe product. It is
durable and comes in an array of sizes which affords a better fit. For
red or blue, we use a high-quality polyester product but due to limited
size options, the fit is not always optimal.
Select the product size based on your anchor chain size, length, weight, and freeboard of your boat. Please see the "Snubber & Bridle Sizing" tab for details.
